Reading - 60 Second Comprehensions
HOME LEARNING - SUMMER TERM WEEK 6 - READING ACTIVITIES
Please continue to read each day. This can be to an adult, quietly to yourself or alongside an audio book. Try to read a variety of books, including fiction stories, non-fiction information and maybe some poetry!

Hopefully you now have the hang of these tasks. These are very short pieces of text (around 100-150 words) with accompanying questions that focus on vocabulary, retrieval, prediction, summarising and inference. There is an accompanying answer sheet ... so no peaking first!
There is a guidance sheet for parents to explain how to use the comprehension and the types of questions.
We have suggested two specific comprehensions for this week:
Rainforests: "Layers of the Rainforest" - Question 4 needs thinking about as you infer the reason why
Animals: "Amazing Facts About the Human Body" - Think carefully about Question 3 as you need to understand why/when we use bullet points in writing. Question 4 also needs you to think about reasons for choices.
You are more than welcome to do more comprehensions if you wish ... or maybe do a bit of research on the rainforest and find out more about the Amazon and the animals that live there.
